Design & Build Quality:

The Primo G7+ has been designed keeping your sense of touch in mind. The 2.5D glass won’t make the device look more appealing, but also the sleek curves combined with the smoothness are features that you will surely admire as you hold it and glide fingers across the screen. Button, port and speaker positioning is fairly standard for a mid-range device, with the power and volume keys on the right, USB and 3.5mm audio port at the top and the speaker at the rear.

The battery drop over the 6 hours of idle time was 5%, which is quite good for the device with the 2800mAh capacity battery. Talking about the screen-on-time it gave me fair amount of 5.5 hours, which is more than you could ask for such battery capacity.
